Nobita Nobi is a normal fourth grade student. This all changes, however, when a blue robotic cat appears from his desk drawer. Calling himself Doraemon, this robot tells Nobita that his future descendants from the 22nd century live in poverty because of all the mistakes he made. Therefore, they have sent Doraemon to serve as a guide and mentor to Nobita, so that their future may change for the better. What Doraemon comes to learn, though, is that Nobita is the weakest and laziest student in the whole school.

To assist in his quest, Doraemon has a four-dimensional pocket with him, in which he keeps various machines and gadgets from the future. Unfortunately, these often result in even more trouble for Nobita. Will Doraemon really be able to achieve his mission of changing Nobita, or will he remain as he is?

Clear all of your previous jaundice, because Doraemon is not as clear and transparent as it would seem on the surface; it should not be simply considered as another anime on par with the pace of all of the classics of anime. With its immensely large number of episodes, and the repetitiveness of its plot line in line with flat characters that hardly undergo any change, it is easy to assume that the anime is simply about the numerous different gadgets that Doraemon brought back from the future. To change your perspective, you only need an open mind, then you will see the truth as read more

A children's anime at best. I watched Doraemon as a child and as much as I loved it back then, I still love it now. Every thing is just cliche, but the endings are always so funny and classic. There isn't anything else I love more than watching Doraemon. I'm probably insane when my friends ask me what my favorite anme is, and I say Doraemon.

but really, this is a good anime that teaches children lessons, and probably a classic if you enjoy classics. It's a long anime, sure, but worth it. Every episode is completely stand alone, and easy to pick up, easy to read more

In 22nd century, Skynet decided to send advanced robots back to the present day to destroy humanity. Skynet sent different robots to different countries, and for Japan, read more

Doraemon is a cat... A Robot Cat from the future who is very, VERY HANDY at all times thanks to his Special Pocket on his stomach that has tons and tons of tools and equipment to use to solve everything that is a problem.

Then, there's that spoiled little kid named Nobita, who is a very annoying little boy who always fails when it come to their school test and quizzes and what's worst is that, he is a very lazy kid and he has always been a victim of being scolded by his mother. In Doraemon's case. Nobita always wants to "borrow" something to Doraemon read more
